Why This Must Be Read: The Summary Says: John Sheppard is determined to bring to ruin the villainous McKay family. But young (ok, youngish) Rodney interferes with his plans.
John wants to destroy the McKay family but before he proceeds with his plans he pays them a visit to see if any of the McKays are worth saving. He Meets Rodney whom he thinks is too timid, too unworldly, too innocent and then realises that this nervous, fearful young man before him needs his protection from an abusive father and brother. John decides to appoint Rodney as his secretary until Rodney is confident enough to stand on his own two feet but everything doesn’t go to plan.
This is a novel length Regency tale with romance and it is surprising how easily I could picture Rodney as the younger shy, nervous man in need of a knight in shining armour to come along and rescue him.
